As we work on your landscape design, one of the most important features to consider is water conservation. Since rainfall can’t be predicted or regulated, it’s important to have a plan for when there is less rainfall than in other seasons. If you’re interested in conserving rainfall for your lawn or garden, here are a couple of tips to consider.
Group Your Plants
Plants and shrubs vary in what they need and what they require. Some need an abundance of water and light, whereas others will only have to be cared for occasionally. For these types of plants, too much water could harm rather than help, so grouping plants can help to conserve water while also extending the life of your plants.
Take Care of Your Lawn
Water can also be conserved when it comes to watering your lawn. You can do a simple test to tell whether or not your yard needs watered by simply taking a few steps and looking at the footprints that have been left. If the grass sprang back immediately, you may want to wait a little longer before watering. However, if the footprints remained, it may be time to water your lawn.
